    The only clue to this acronym I can find on any site relating to the Indian police (I assume this is an Indian show?) is "Crimes Against Women". I'm not sure that makes any sense though.

    If it's a UK TV series, then it won't be that. How strange. I've looked on the list of all police abbreviations in the UK and it doesn't appear. Do they definitely say the 3 letters, not a word that sounds like it's spelt "caw"?

    Good suggestion. "Put a call out on him" could well mean "Alert all other police officers that he has disappeared and that they should look out for him".
